Netflix #StreamTeamI've said it before, and I'll say it again: My "recently-watched" and "recommended for" sections of my Netflix dashboard are completely dominated by children's programming. Yes, as a card-carrying member of the Netflix #StreamTeam, I'm more than aware that I could choose "KIDS" as a sign-in option, or create a new profile just for the munchkins - but I'm never one to take the easiest path, so I roll with it. While I bring you news on Netflix content periodically throughout each month, my formal column for May falls firmly in the hands of THE ROCK DAUGHTERS, Adalyn and Finley. What are they watching (with guidance from Mommy and Daddy)? Let's just say that a few of this month's choices are very close to my heart as well...

NETFLIX Stream TeamI posted a picture on Instagram the other day that my wife and I had been joking about. As the girls had just been tucked-in the night before, Jen and I sat down to watch another episode of the breakthrough MARVEL smash DAREDEVIL on Netflix. We don't have a lot of time for "binge watching" (though it's been very tempting), so we're on about episode 10 right now. The funny thing was how the "Recently Watched" and "Top Picks for James" reflected how much of our viewing is dictated by our girls. Yes, you can set-up individual profiles for the family (there's even a "KIDS" one), but I tend to use my own on our Vizio Smart TV just for the sake of convenience. What my wife said is that "people who would see these would either figure you have daughters, or are a total creep." Take a look...

My girls have been having some CARE BEARS withdrawal issues of late, with CARE BEARS: WELCOME TO CARE-A-LOT producing just 26 episodes (the last new one aired nearly 2 ½ years ago already), and the next series nearly a year off, when CARE BEARS AND COUSINS makes it's debut as a NETFLIX Original in 2016. While the popular characters from American Greetings are often popping up on those lists of "80's Toys That Are Back!" - CARE BEARS have never gone away for any real length of time, though their licensing partners have changed repeatedly. One of the more recent companies to pick-up the merchandising torch is Just Play, who have been slowly rolling out a new collection of CARE BEARS toys primed to capture the hearts of new fans and old ones (like me) alike. The first item to really hit home for us is the "Care Bears 5-Pack of Articulated Figures," which we're just calling "action figures" here at Rock Father HQ, despite only the arms moving on these 3" figures. Minimal articulation matters not to my girls, who are absolutely in love with this collection, while the nostalgia vibe is mighty for my wife and I...

Netflix Stream TeamGet ready for more adventure with King Julien, as five new episodes of DreamWorks Animation's ALL HAIL KING JULIEN are headed to Netflix. Premiering April 3, Madagascar will welcome Timo, Madagascar's resident scientist and newest member of the tribe. "A prickly, sarcastic tenrec (similar to a hedgehog) who conducts experiments and builds things out of the various junk that washes up on shore, Timo is also Julien's go-to "tech guy" -- though as far as Julien is concerned, Timo is a wizard who uses his "science-magic" to fix anything." Timo is voiced by David Krumholtz (This is the End and TV’s “The Good Wife”). King Julien also discovers something very close to my heart, coffee. Episode descriptions below...

Netflix #StreamTeamWhen I did my January column as a member of the NETFLIX #StreamTeam, I mentioned how excited the girls were for the NETFLIX Original, EVER AFTER HIGH: SPRING UNSPRUNG. The latest special to be based upon Mattel's wildly-successful fashion dolls, SPRING UNSPRUNG is a seasonally-appropriate mini-movie, and one well-worth a watch with the true start of Spring just days ahead. We recently caught-up on all-things EAH with a couple of the new dolls, and a viewing of SPRING UNSPRUNG, all tied-together in a fancy little weekday party here at Rock Father HQ. Are you a Royal or a Rebel? That tends to be the question, and my girls were quick to choose their sides...
